glogin is a program that can be used to cause a terminal (usually a virtual console) to be logged in automatically, without having to type a userid and password. Stick it in place of getty in /etc/inittab to have terminals come up logged in and at a shell prompt at every boot. Same purpose as 'alogin', but you use it a little differently, and it does a little more of the usual login stuff. It is a simple Perl program, and can be easily customized.

s6 is a complete process supervision suite in the style of daemontools, runit, and perp. It provides a candidate for process 1. It also comes with a library and command line utilities that implement inter-process notification and synchronization.

pmtr starts your application daemons (not the system daemons) at system boot and lets you dynamically add, remove, or edit jobs at runtime. What makes pmtr different from sysvinit and similar systems is that all your jobs are defined in one configuration file, and the syntax is friendly.

/etc/net represents a new approach to Linux network configuration tasks. Inspired by the limitations of traditional network configuration subsystems, /etc/net provides built-in support for configuration profiles, interface name management, removable devices, full iproute2 command set, interface dependencies resolution, QoS, and firewall configuration frameworks. /etc/net provides support for the following interface types: ethernet, WiFi (WEP), IPv4/IPv6 tunnels, PSK IPSec tunnels, VLAN, PLIP, ethernet bonding and bridging, traffic equalizer, Pent@NET, Pent@VALUE, SkyStar-2, TUN/TAP, OpenVPN TUN/TAP, usbnet, and PPP. Due to its modular structure, support for new interface types can be added without overall design changes.

runit is a cross-platform Unix init scheme with service supervision; a replacement for sysvinit and other init schemes. It runs on GNU/Linux, *BSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris, and can easily be adapted to other Unix operating systems. runit implements a simple three-stage concept. Stage 1 performs the system's one-time initialization tasks. Stage 2 starts the system's uptime services (via the runsvdir program). Stage 3 handles the tasks necessary to shutdown and halt or reboot.

Finit is an extremely fast /sbin/init replacement with a focus on small embedded GNU/Linux systems. It's based on Claudio Matsuoka's original fast init replacement, with extensions for run levels, multiple TTYs, I/O plugins, service plugins, and extensibility plugins.

Autopoweroff is a script that shuts down a computer at a specific time, but only if some conditions are met. It works well on home routers/firewalls where the machine can be switched off every night and powered back up in the morning. It can be configured to only shut down the server after any computers which depend on the server for Internet access have been shut down.

The Epoch Init System is an init system for Linux designed with ease of configuration and non-intrusiveness in mind. It has no external dependencies besides libc and pthreads on a Linux 2.6+ system, though a working /bin/sh is suggested. It's suitable for large and small Linux distributions, but was designed with a focus on smaller Linux systems. It's features include a log system capable of recording boot events before the filesystem is made writable, ASCII runlevels, a convenient, single configuration file setup, automatic hostname setting at boot, automatic virtual filesystem mounting (think /proc), PID file support, stuck job killing during bootup and shutdown, integrated color greeting banner support, and automatic service restart support, to keep vital services running at all times.

eINIT is an alternative init system. It's quite fast, since it can potentially be used without the help of any scripting at all, but it is still flexible and extremely modular. The focus is on speed and parallelisation, mostly with embedded devices and low-downtime servers in mind, and benchmarks do suggest that it's doing a fairly good job at that. It compiles cleanly (and should thus work, provided someone writes appropriate modules) on Linux, FreeBSD, and Darwin/Mac OS X.
